Wilson, a Political Brand and a Basketball Brand

The NCAA men’s basketball tournament tips off at noon on Thursday, and so does a fundraiser for freshman Rep. Charlie Wilson (D).

Wilson is hosting a “March Madness” fundraising luncheon tied to the start of the tourney at the National Democratic Club on Capitol Hill. Ticket prices start at $1,000.

Although he represents a conservative district in the Southeast corner of the state that twice voted for President Bush, Wilson thus far is seen as a fairly safe bet for re-election. No Republican has come forward yet to challenge him.
